My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

The Little Things

We all remember where we were on 9/11/01. Please let's all take time for a prayer for those that lost loved ones on that awful day. I remember it like it was yesterday and the days and weeks that followed with all of us glued to the television praying for more survivors. What a tragic time.

My friend Sara e-mailed me this back in April of this year and I loved it so much I saved it to post today. For those of you that have read it, read it again. This may give you a new outlook on life.

The Little Things

As you might remember, the head of a company survived
9/11 because his son started kindergarten.

Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.

One women was late because her
Alarm clock didn't go off on time.

One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident

One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.

One couldn't
Get a taxi

The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning. Took the various means to get to work, before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.

That is why these people are alive today.

Now when I am stuck in traffic miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone. All the little things that annoy me. I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this moment.

Next time your morning seems to be going wrong,you can't find the car keys, you hit every traffic light, don't get mad or frustrated; it may be just that God is at work watching over you.

May God continue to bless all of us with those annoying little things, and may we remember their possible purpose.

Pass this on to someone else, if you'd like. There is No Luck attached. If you delete this, it's okay;
God's Love is Not Dependent on E-Mail

Thank you Sara for sharing this with me.
